You can rely on us for open communication and personalized attention.

Different Types of Estate Administration

In Texas, there are two types of estate administration, depending on the details of your circumstances:

  • Dependent administration: When heirs cannot agree on how to divide an estate, dependent administration may be needed. Court approval is required for any major steps that administrators of the estate take and, as a result, it is often a slower and more expensive path.
  • Independent administration: Independent administration is a more simplified process that is also free from supervision of the court. Through this option, you can avoid many costly delays that often arise through court intervention.

Understanding Estate Administration & Litigation

Estate litigation governs disputes that arise surrounding an estate.

Common examples of estate litigation include:

  • Disputes over the validity of a will;
  • Guardianship conflicts;
  • Claims of breaches of fiduciary duty by trustees;
  • Claims of breaches of fiduciary duty by executors;
  • Allegations of conflicts of interest or self-dealing during estate distribution;
  • Allegations of accounting errors;
  • Disputes over property allocation and conservatorships.

You can utilize estate planning documents to appoint an estate administration attorney for your estate. Estate administration attorneys work with other individuals named in wills and trusts, such as executors and trustees, to protect a decedent's (deceased individual's) estate.

At DebnamRust, P.C., our attorneys offer estate administration services that enable you to ensure your property remains protected and your loved ones receive the legal counsel they deserve even after you pass away.
